Classic French brasserie fare in the Sonoran Desert
Whether you're in Tucson for a stay or just passing through, "Agustín Brasserie" is worth checking out. Just west of downtown, a couple of blocks from I-10, you might not expect to find 'duck confit' or 'vichyssoise' in this desert city more known (and justly so) for its Mexican food.
But here it is. Sleek but unpretentious, located in a revitalizing historic neighborhood (site of the original Spanish settlement in the late 1700's), this place served up a home-made country pâté platter worthy of any bistro in Paris. (And after dinner, my wife and I were treated to complimentary tarte tatin and crème brûlée for our anniversary!)
Venga pa'comer; venez manger! Come eat.
